Wow, what a whirlwind first round of the NFL draft. The draft is always exciting and it never fails to deliver the shocking and unexpected moments. There were plenty of those last night.
The first five picks of the draft went smoothly, as all five of those picks were pretty much expected but the excitement really started with the sixth pick. From there on out we saw some top 10 players fall (Prince Amukamara and Da’Quan Bowers), while other players went well before most people expected (Christian Ponder).
I want to share some of my thoughts on what went down last night, as I thought there were some very strong picks to go along with some head-scratchers. I can’t wait for what is sure to be another exciting night of action tonight for rounds two and three.
